Cardiff Bay Walking Tour
Cardiff Bay was once one of the world's most significant ports, at the centre of the international coal trade by the early, turning the small town of Cardiff into the capital of Wales.
Its former prominence as a major docklands has resulted in a rich history of industry, immigration & diversity.   
Today, it is Europe's largest waterfront development project, and Cardiff's centre of culture, entertainment and politics, yet still contains many references to its grittier and sometimes glorious past as Tiger Bay.
On this 2 hour historical and cultural Cardiff Bay walking tour, we'll delve deeper into Cardiff's political and industrial history, and discover stories and iconic structures old and new, including... 
Roald Dahl
The Coal Exchange
Industrial Cardiff
  The Senedd
Pierhead Building
Wales Millenium Centre
Norwegian Church
Captain Robert Falcon Scott
Mermaid Quay
and more...
